i think the group of women might have something to do with Brannigan's Law.  They all might be fugitives and commandeer the planet express ship, but i don't know

Never thought of that but it actually makes alot of sense.

Edit: Haven't done this in awhile, TOTPD

All this great news about ITWGY and my fears about McFarlane are allayed slightly when you hear it's a small cameo role and not a full blown one. I have a good feeling about this fourth (and hopefully not final) feature.

I want to cry, but theres still some tiny bit of hope.

Since no new Futurama projects are in production nor have they been commissioned by Fox studios, and given the length of time required to produce animation of this kind, it is viewed as likely that Into the Wild Green Yonder will be the final outing for Futurama. However, Matt Groening has expressed a desire to continue the Futurama franchise in some form, including as a theatrical film. Producer David X. Cohen has also stated that he remains hopeful, telling Wired magazine "I will no longer rule out any possible means of coming back to life, whether through more DVDs, webisodes or episodes.... I'm cautiously hopeful.

What?

We're not going to hear anything about a potential renewal until ITWGY comes out, and the numbers come in. Given that it still could be the last Futurama ever, the numbers should be pretty good - especially since the first three movies' have been "better than expected". Which gives more hope for a renewal than not, honestly, though that does set up for a bigger fall so it's still best not too get too hopeful...

The length of time required to generate a single Futurama episode has nothing to do with a potential renewal of the series, though. I mean, the show came back after, like, four years of being "cancelled" and "over", so animation time isn't really something to worry about. If it's going to get renewed, then it's going to get renewed, even if it does come a year or two post-ITWGY.

It would be stupid of them to wait another year or more after the movies, though. Lose whatever momentum they've garnered.
I have a feeling the decision's possibly already been made. One way or another. But yeah, as I've said before, they are probably going to wait until ITWGY's been released, before announcing anything.

Looks like a photo of his PJs from the opening scene of the Devils Hands.

it also looks like the pants he had on in the sting when he and fry were golfing(virtually)

No, the golfing trousers from The Sting are pretty different: they aren't blue and checked, but brown and kind of... hairy.

Trekmovie.com has this little blurb about Futurama.  Scroll down a little to get to the Futurama article.

Who knows?  Maybe ITWGY will do so well in DVD sales, Futurama will come back for new episodes!   So far the other DVDs sold well.......

OK, here it is, the WORLD'S FIRST (slightly spoiler free) review of Into the Wild Green Yonder: http://tinyurl.com/63k39e

It's the same site that had the FIRST reviews of the first 3 films ... yep, we did it again. It's nice having connections at Fox.

Hey. could anybody truncate the above review so then we don't have mass suicide over a huge secret being spoiled? (If there is one, I don't want to spoil myself after reading "Bender's Big Score".)

I took the plunge and read it.  There's nothing in there that will cause mass suicide, but there are some minor to moderate spoilers.

and then there's this:

I'll put this in spoilers just in case there's anyone out there who's determined to not have the film even slightly spoiled...so if you're one of those people I'm warning you in advance not to read this as I'm essentially giving my views about what was said in the review:


The film in general does sound incredibly promising going by that review and I for one can't wait.

Only just over two months...the wait gets increasingly agonising.

Don't have a clue but I must admit I'm surprised that there's a review ALREADY.

It's still over two months away and the cover art hasn't even come out yet.

Who knows though?

i still have a feeling that theres other futurama projects in the works but there keeping it secret, its too good it needs to be back on the air its better than all animation shows without a doubt.

I really doubt there are any projects in the works.  If you remember, we had rumors about a possible comeback two years before BBS came out.  There's just no way something like that would remain a total secret.  If there have been talks, they've been informal, and only between DXC, Matt, and the upper tiers of FOX.  Remember, as far as FOX is concerned, everything comes down to how much money can be made.  They'll think long and hard before putting Futurama back on the air.  We may all think its the best show of all time, but we have to compete with the vast majority that thinks crap like "Sex and the City" is teh roXXoRs.

This should get your television watching privileges removed. That and Friends.

They will probably wait untill ITWGY figures are in to do anything about it, even though the sales of the first 2 dvd's were supposed to be beyond their expectations. Fox will sit and wait and count the money, and if it adds up to enough at the end then we will see more. But don't expect Fox to make any decision until 95% of the pennies have been counted.

All these decisions are purely based on money, if they think Futurama would be worth bringing back from a financial perspective then we'll probably see it return after the Wild Green Yonder in some form.

The Simpson's isn't still getting made because it's good...it's pretty terrible these days if anything...but it's still a money spinner and therefore will still get produced.

If and when Comedy Central wants more new Futurama may be an issue as well. There also have been some musings about bringing Futurama back to FOX. CC has only shown the first two DVD's so far, right? So a broadcast schedule would mean a need for new episodes in the fall or winter (9-12 months yet). It's a cinch that the DVD's so far are money makers and a good investment. But the present economic disaster has made money hard to come by in loan form, although I haven't heard the entertainment industry is struggling right now.

Hmmm... DVD 5: The Professor heads to Congress seeking loans to save Planet Express from certain financial doom (again).

Y'know, I think that "Into the Wild Green Yonder" will be the final stab into the Fry/Leela relationship arc that will kill all passion and shipping for it. It's almost like witnessing a murder.

Sad to say, I agree with you.  The Leela/Fry arc has gone on way too long, been very convoluted and has ended up making Fry look like some loser-stalker and Leela becoming an unsympathetic, unlikable person.

The really sad thing is that it didn't have to be that way, that the two didn't have to be paired-offed or married to make both more likable and still have tension between the two.

I do hope we do get a couple of more years of eps, going back to the 22 minute format.  This time with the two acknowledging the feelings for the other yet still finding ways to piss each other off.

Wow!  Sounds very promising!  Awesome!  Even if it is the last of Futurama, at least Matt Greoning will continue it possibly as a live-action movie!  That would be really cool!  Can't wait to see Bender's affair, Leela as an outlaw, Fry joining a gang that wears tin foil hats!   Can't see to see what Leela really feels about Fry.

One thing bothered me about the trailer.  When it shows Bender saying, "And if you think that's......" why was he wearing a space helmet.  He's a robot, he don't need one, he can't breathe!    Oh, and will it be revealed about why Leela is 'the other'?

I don't think he intends to make it a live-action movie. If anything, it will be another animated feature like the Simpsons Movie.

Review sounds interesting (altough a little chaotic). I now fear that "ancient battle" will be once again just climax of the whole thing.

Region 2 comes out before Region 1 because region 1 gets every other fucking thing in the universe before us. So deal with it, meatbaguette.

I don't see why people are complaining about the UK getting it a day earlier.

Back when BBS was released in the USA there were still many months until it came out in the UK.]

But as Mr Knight of Ni says the net usually serves as an equaliser in such instances.
